    Urbex explains: "People are normally pretty amazed with the places that I get to see, the fact that these places are just left to rot away and never be seen again."

    "These photographs show what was once a happy, bustling and buzzing location now left to ruin".

    "You'll always get the odd one or two that thinks I'm in the wrong for doing what I do but in my eyes it's all about documenting our British history and not letting these once grand, bustling places go unseen."
